The '''Protestant Episcopal Church in the Confederate States of America''' was an Anglican Christian denomination which existed from 1861 to 1865. It was formed by Southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church (United States)|Episcopal Church in the United States during the American Civil War. When the Southern states seceded from the United States|Union and established the Confederate States of America, it was not unusual for Christian churches to split along national lines also. The Episcopalians were different as their separation was made only after the Confederacy was created and ended within six months of the Southern United States|South's surrender when Southern Episcopalians reunited with their counterparts in the Northeast United States|North.
